WASHINGTON --Theatrics for Jamie Dimon's day on Capitol Hill began according to the script for high-profile Washington hearings, with requisite heckling from protesters.
As the chairman and chief executive officer of JPMorgan Chase & Co. arrived to take his seat at a Senate Banking Committee hearing, a man in a brown blazer began shouting at Dimon as a crush of photographers snapped away.
“Jamie Dimon’s a crook," the man yelled, as Dimon appeared unfazed. "This guy should be going to prison."
After he quieted down, Capitol police allowed the man to take his seat, as senators and spectators entered the hearing room.
Shortly thereafter, a chant erupted -- "Stop foreclosures now!" -- among some protesters, including the earlier heckler. Capitol police then removed them.
